Sven Arvidson presents at national meeting

Sven Arvidson, director of Liberal Studies and senior faculty fellow of Center for Faculty Development, presented "Cultivating Integrity: Virtue in Integrative Education" at the national meeting of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies at Miami University, Ohio. Arvidson drew on ancient and contemporary scholars, and the curricular design of Liberal Studies at Seattle University, to answer the question:  "If a university program is dedicated to educating the whole person, to maximizing student growth in an integrative way, what should such integration look like and what could integration mean?" The presentation described cultivating integrity in students and programs through a progressive balance of discipline and autonomy in introductory, methods, and capstone courses.
